PMID:  1147394     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In this paper are presented three case reports on the use of acupuncture as the sole means of intraoperative analgesia. The authors also discuss the present status of the possible indications, contraindications, advantages, disadvantages and future indications for its use. It also shows that the term anesthesia is a misnomer for this modality, and that it should be called acupuncture analgesia.
